Avatar director James Cameron is deeply looking into an MCU villain and a film. According to Cameron, the MCU’s Thanos and his idea were right in Avengers: Infinity War. He supports Thanos wiping out half of all living creatures in the universe.
During an interview with the Time, Cameron said, “I can relate to Thanos… I thought he had a pretty viable answer.” He added, “The problem is nobody is going to put up their hand to volunteer to be half that has to go.” Thanos wiped out all living creatures in the universe at the end of Infinity War, and in the sequel, Endgame, the Avengers managed to travel back in time and save the universe.
Cameron is the first director to have three films gross more than $2 billion (Avatar grossed $2.92 billion, Avatar: The Way of Water grossed $2.243 billion, and Titanic grossed $2.19 billion). He now has three of the top six highest-grossing films of all time.
Cameron previously criticized Marvel and DC Studios for ignoring real-world concerns such as parenthood in an interview (via CBR), but Avatar: The Way of Water is not like that. He said, “I was consciously thinking to myself, Okay, all these superheroes, they never have kids. They never really have to deal with the real things that hold you down and give you feet of clay in the real world.”
